Death pays a call to an English household and discovers he's come to the wrong house. This is the first time he has ever made such a mistake. Slowly he comes to realize that people are dying without his help. He feels totally usurped and helpless. Suspecting treachery of the greatest magnitude, England's most cunning detective, Inspector Mirabelle, is called in to get to the bottom of things.

Incidentally, Death In England (Another Inspector Mirabelle Adventure) is the first and only Inspector Mirabelle adventure.
